I found an article titled     (01)

"Ultraconserved words point to deep language
ancestry across Eurasia"    (02)

That might be interesting to an occasional
ontologist among us.  The URL is:    (03)

26110.full.pdf+html     (04)

It lists 23 words that are shared in a buncha
modern languages, and the authors claim the 15,000
year old dating through statistical analysis.
They produce what they call a "Phylogenetic Tree
of the Eurasiatic Language Superfamily".      (05)

Are all 23 of these words in Cyc?      (06)

Does anyone know if these words are part of Ana
Wierzbicka's vocabulary of primitives to some
degree?    (07)
